Academic Advising Center

A trusted academic mentor is invaluable. We pair you with an advisor so you can make decisions about coursework and your career with confidence.

Our most successful students are the ones who take advantage of collaborating with his or her advisor. Advisors don’t want you to meander through your college career. They want you to excel by helping you see possibilities — internships, classes, and more — that can get you from Point A to Point B.

Advisors check on your academic progress, approve your schedule, discuss your goals and how to accomplish them, and, if needed, get you connected to extra help. You won’t get lost in the shuffle at York College. Right from the start, you have a faculty or staff member who wants to know what you want to do one day, and will make it a personal mission to get your there.
